Matthews is probable to return after exiting the game with a left shoulder injury, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports. Matthews was forced to head to the locker during Wednesday's game, however the injury doesn't seem to be anything serious as he is expected to return. More information should come out shortly. Prior to suffering the injury, Matthews played seven minutes and collected one assist.
Matthews supplied 21 points (6-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 5-7 FT), three rebounds, and three assists in 31 minutes during Saturday's 107-104 win over the Rockets. Matthews has reached double figures in scoring in seven straight games. This is the first time he has put up 20-plus points since Nov. 6, this after he reached that mark in five out of eight October tilts to begin the season. Matthews still has some value in standard leagues, particularly those that primarily value counting stats.
Matthews tallied 15 points (5-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-5 FT), three assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 132-106 loss to New Orleans. Matthews continues to provide some nice value in both scoring and three's, dropping another 15 points during Wednesday's loss. Since returning from injury, Matthews has six consecutive games of at least 11 points, hitting a combined 13 triples in that time. His ceiling is limited but he could still be owned in standard formats if his skill set matches your needs.
Matthews tallied 14 points (5-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one steal across 31 minutes in the Mavericks' 114-110 win over the Clippers on Sunday. Matthews provided excellent complementary production alongside the efforts of Harrison Barnes and DeAndre Jordan, helping make up for some of the scoring void created by the absence of Luka Doncic (hip). The veteran two-guard continues to serve as a solid source of fantasy production in multiple categories (15.4 PPG, 2.7 RPG, 2.4 APG), and he has four straight double-digit scoring efforts since returning from a three-game absence due to a hamstring injury.
Matthews had 15 points (4-12 FG, 3-9 3PT, 4-4 FT) in Saturday's win over the Celtics. Matthews made his return after a three-game absence and connected on a trio of three-pointers, which continues to be his primary source of fantasy value.
